Well folks, it's that time again. Time for good 'ol PHK; but this time, things are a bit different. Things are a bit....happier. More relaxed.
We are coming off one of our biggest wins in recent history, and the way it was done cannot be overlooked. This team showed more guts and fire than any of recent vintage. This team refused to quit, refused to go away, and kept taking the fight to the Chargers right to the very end.
As a result, we beat those jokers for the first time in seven years. I didn't get to see the whole game (as most of you know by now) but I did catch the last five minutes. And it felt good!
Good vibes abound this week, but this team is far from perfect and is actually in a little bit of uncertain flux at the moment due to injuries and a good problem with versatility at a couple different positions.
The Raiders had a huge win last Sunday over a divison rival that had owned us in recent years. Now, we travel across the bay to a waiting and desperate 0-5 San Francisco 49ers team that is as hated as the Chargers.
The Raiders showed last week that if they play aggressively and stay focused for an entire game, they can win against good teams. However, there were some issues and as such there are still needs this team must address.
With all this in mind let's get to the Raiders Week 6 edition of PHK.
